Dip each slice of bread into the egg batter.

Directions to make the salted caramel :

  • Stir sugar and 40 ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to boil and cook for 6-8 minutes until it becomes a thick caramel. 
  • Remove the pan off the stove and whisk in the cubes of butter. Be careful while combining as the hot caramel could split.
  • Slowly add the cream while constantly mixing. The mixture will foam and rise so be careful. Add 1 teaspoon of salt (or to taste) and whisk again to combine.
  • Keep warm on the side.

Suggestions for plating your French toast for an Insta-worthy picture:

  • Place a slice of French toast and generously spread some of the salted caramel. Slather on some chocolate sauce or Nutella. Add some sliced banana and repeat the process to form a stack. To finish, put some toasted coconut slices on the top.
